The Sav­ior who loves me and su­ffered the loss
Of hea­ven­ly glo­ry to die on the cross,
The Babe of the man­ger, though born with­out stain,
This Je­sus is com­ing, is com­ing again!


Jesus is com­ing, is com­ing, is com­ing!
Jesus is com­ing again!
My heart is so hap­py, my soul is so glad,
For Je­sus is com­ing again!

The an­gels, re­joic­ing and sing­ing His praise
To Beth­le­hem shep­herds of ear­li­er days,
Will come in the glo­ry, at­tend­ing His train,
When Je­sus, my Sav­ior, is com­ing again!


The saints will be with Him, O hea­ven­ly bliss!
How tear­ful the part­ing from fac­es we miss!
But clouds are des­cend­ing, and we who re­main
Are caught up to meet them with Je­sus again!


O hearts that are wea­ry, and sin­ful, and sad,
We carry the tid­ings that make us so glad;
We pub­lish the Sav­ior o’er mount­ain and plain;
The Lord who re­deemed us is com­ing again!
